Even though my client can associate with sflan11 with 40% signal strength, I still haven't been able to get an IP via DHCP since Sunday, 2/11 when the whole network went down for a few hours.

So yesterday I climbed Mt Olympus, home of the gods and supposedly sflan11. Using my notebook with a wifi adapter and an external antenna, the signal strength to sflan11 was 50% and connection quality was reported as 100%. I could associate with sflan11, but still no IP. I could also see sflan13, with signal strength of 15-35% and connection quality reported at 100%. I WAS able to get an IP from sflan13. Based on the IP it looks like that node is running a NAT.

It seems like there's a problem with sflan11. Any chance this could be looked at? Or is there something else I can try? Unfortunately sflan13 isn't in range from my home and the top of Mt. Olympus can be a really cold place to work at night. :-) Thanks.
